Up for sale is a 95 Chevy 3500 HD flatbed tow truck with the 454 motor. It has a Holmes aluminum bed with the tow bar in the rear for towing an extra vehicle behind the truck. The bed measures from front to back at 19ft. All the lighting on the bed was recently redone and has all new lights and light covers as you can see in the pictures. In this auction will also be included an orange and white Whelen light bar for overhead rotating and strobe lighting. its not pictured on the truck.
It has a strong 454 motor that was rebuilt about a year ago. The transmission on it went out two months ago and it was replaced and the transmission guy added stronger parts and said that this transmission upgrade would make this thing bulletproof and it was ideal for all the power the truck has to exert while towing. It cost me quite a bit more than a regular tranny and it really does tow tons better now. I just put a brand new fuel pump in and the filters were replaced as well. O2 sensors and exhaust were recently replaced as well.
The bed is fully operational and so is the lift. It runs smooth and I have never had a problem with it. I have not had the time to add a master control for all the lights after I started the upgrade on them all. It will need one or you can rig up switches as you please. I also tore out the old throttle lock cable and have not put in a new one yet. Its only 30 for the cable and literally takes 30 minutes to install. It does not affect the functionality of the bed but the high idol allows the bed to move faster as it increases the engines RPM's and pushes the PTO to move faster. The belt on the PTO was just changed. It is coming time to take some preventative maintenance steps and have the PTO serviced and maybe have it rebuilt. I have done this with all my trucks diligently every two years to keep them in top form.This one is about due.
The interior is in good shape with normal wear and tear. My trucks have always been well maintained and serviced. The body of the truck is also in good shape as you can see and the paint job is new as well. It does have AC and it does work but if you know Chevys then you know that between the years of 95 to 01 the switches for the vents that Chevy used on their trucks always had problems. you turn the switch and sometimes you will get air cold enough to blast you out of the truck, other times not so much. That would be the one complaint I have that I never got around to fixing.
It's a good truck and I hate to see it go but I have to make room for new ones. Good luck. You must have feedback to be able to participate in this bid and if you don't plan on buying, then don't place a bid. I have had to re-list too many items previously because people don't want to pay. I reserve the right to end auction early as it is for sale locally as well.

Chevrolet Camaro in Korea - Click above for high-resolution image
There once was a time when Daewoo was one of the biggest companies in South Korea. It was larger than both LG and Samsung, and second only to Hyundai. But these days the name is all but gone.
General Motors says its next-generation Chevrolet Tahoe, Suburban, GMC Yukon and Cadillac Escalade models will offer shoppers improved interior differentiation. Car and Driver recently caught up with Chris Hilts, GM's creative manager of interior design, who said that the cabins will all feature unique instrument panels, consoles, center stacks and switchgear moving forward. Apparently GM is now aware that consumers may be bothered by the fact that today's $85,000 Escalade has effectively the same cabin as a $45,000 Tahoe. Hilts says SUV buyers want more refinement than their pickup purchasing counterparts - and those same buyers also want their SUVs to have more exterior differentiation between the company's Silverado and Sierra pickup lines. Shocking.

That all sounds good to us, but we've heard this song and dance before. GM made big waves about how different the new-for-2013 Silverado and Sierra would look from each other, but judging by what we've seen so far, GM's stylists are painting in shades rather than with the full spectrum.

If you want a new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette but can't quite save up enough pennies for the monthly payment, we have good news for you. Toymaker New Bright has pulled the covers off of its 1:8 scale remote-controlled version of the American sports car. Complete with a very detailed interior and LED headlights, this large-scale R/C is as close as most of us will ever come to having one of the menacing Chevrolet models to call our very own. New Bright still hasn't released pricing or availability, but word has it the coupe should hit the market soon.
Right now, it appears as if the C7 will hit shelves in Torch Red, though we don't know if other colors are planned as well. The good news is that New Bright isn't exactly turning its back on the old C6 - representatives say the company will continue to make its popular C6R racecar for those who prefer round taillights.
